Great day-
For father's day- we chased down some brass and dies, and my 13 year old son loaded 50 rounds of 300 savage ammo as a present for my dad.

We finally got a change to go test it .


Dad hadn't shot his old Savage model 99 in many years (1953 model), the scope (from the 60's) was still pretty on, just a bit high. It produced ear to ear grins all around- we had some bowling pins that made excellent targets

The boy with my Rem 700 in .223- he's 14 tomorrow


He pulled the scope off his little savage .22 for kicks


My Rem 700 on the left, Savage 93 in .17 on the right, my son's Savage 111 in .243 tucked in there, The range was a mess ,


Three generations--Good stuff people-

Please excuse the ancient photos!


Gold/Pearl 400th Anniversary of St. Augustine Colt Peacemaker


Little Colt Arista Cub .25acp. So tiny! I nearly always carry it. And a Logitec G9x gaming mouse & Harmony remote :p Ya, big time a few years ago LoL!


1 shot .22 Lady's Derringer
9 shot .22 revolver (target practice!)





CETME


.22lr pump rifle one grandfather left me. unknown maker. his father got it raiding a still near the turn of the century.




Remington Rolling block in .45-75 govt


Lee-Enfield No.5 in .303 British. My second favorite gun. My first shot ever with this old gun I slammed it home on my grandfather's mailbox... From his front porch 120yds away. It was a good day!


.410 Remington 1100 shotgun. Why .410? Because it's the ultimate snake solution. Anything more is useless & they didn't make many in .410. ;)
.22lr savage 500. Meh...

Matched set of 1967 Whichester Canadian Centennial's in .30-30. Cheaper than the more beloved & all-milled "pre '64 wood grips" but 45 years later they're as good as new & the plastic stocks are almost a full pound lighter on mine... No idea what gun person decided they weren't as good as desirable as the pre '64's...
Upper one is the 20" carbine (my favorite gun ever! Soooo light! Shoots so well!)
Lower one is the full 26" rifle.

A lot of people don't like the stock irons. I do well with them. .30-30 has some drop at 200yds, but the drop matches up with the diameter of the bead. Shoot one bead high at 200yds = on target. They both still outshoot my vision... :)

If that's an octagonal barrel then it could be a Winchester Model 1890. If that's a round barrel then I'd guess a Winchester Model 1906.

That is what I would buy. Looks like the best bang for the buck to me.

Winchester Model 1906 is as good as guess as any, but it's hard to know without rebuilding it. all markings are removed, even from internals. there are a differences from the 1906 experts ive seen next too it.

Grips for Walther PPK/S

A few weeks ago I bought a Walther PPK/S and really like the way this little pop gun shoots. But, I do not like the feel of the plastic grips. Does anyone know a source for "bolt-on" grips of either polymer, hard rubber or even wood for this little piece?


TIA

I know, all you guys are just too cool for all that safety shit, but let's not try to promote the the image of an irresponsible gun owner, shall we?

Hopefully the pic was just staged, in which case, nevermind.
